The 2015 NCAA women’s cross-country regionals just completed and we have crunched the at-large scenarios using the computer program of former Duke runner and now Olympic Trials qualifier (and Harvard Ph.D. candidate) Bo Waggoner.

Unofficially, here are your 31 teams for NCAAs in Louisville, Kentucky with the logic below. If you see any errors, please email us [email protected]

The first 18 teams are the automatic qualifiers. Discuss this development on our message board: 2015 Women’s NCAA Cross Country Team Qualifiers.

Update: We originally ran this with Texas not in the Pre-Nats results. We have rerun it now with Texas in the results. Here are our updated UNOFFICIAL 31 teams.

Additionally, it has been noted in this thread (Official 2015 NCAA XC Regional Live Discussion Thread) that we have a different list of qualifiers than Flotrack. They only difference is they have Purdue and Wisco going in whereas we have San Francisco and Gonzaga.

We believe that to be the result of the 23rd qualifier spot, which we have as San Francisco (pushed in by Gonzaga). You can read the entire logic below but the basics are that a bunch of teams have one at-large point at that point in the process and Gonzaga wins our tiebreakers based on a common opponent victory over Princeton. That common opponent is BYU, whom Gonzaga beat at the WCC Champs (the two teams tied on points but Gonzaga is listed as the winner). 

The unresolved question is whether a team can push another team in after winning a common opponent tie breaker. If this cannot happen then Wisconsin and Purdue should replace Gonzaga and San Francisco below.

The NCAA rule book says this about pushing: “The Push Process: The situation may arise when the next team under consideration based upon regional finish from a specific region (Team X) does not have enough wins (points) to earn an at-large bid, but the team immediately behind Team X in regional finish (Team Y) does have enough wins (points) to be the next at-large team selected. In this case, both teams X and Y will receive at-large bids (Team Y “pushes” Team X into the championships) if: (1) The push process has not been used within that specific region earlier in the at-large selection process, and (2) There are two or more at-large positions available in the selection process, and (3) Team Y would not be able to receive an at-large berth on its own — in other words, when Team X is permanently blocking Team Y. There have been occasions when Team Y has the most wins of the teams under consideration, but the committee can determine that Team Y will receive an at-large berth later in the process. In these cases a “push” is not absolutely necessary and would not be applied.”

and this about common opponents: “4. Records of the teams under consideration against common opponents. If the committee cannot make a decision based upon head-to-head competition, it reviews results against common opponents. a. In order to maintain seven competition opportunities, results versus common opponents must have occurred between the seventh weekend before the NCAA regional meet (i.e., Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25-27, 2015) through the conclusion of NCAA Regional Cross Country Championships (scheduled for Nov. 13, 2015). b. The committee evaluates the cumulative record against common opponents, including multiple wins and/or losses against an opponent(s). c. In situations where the record against common opponents’ data is equal between teams under consideration, the committee may give greater consideration to the competition conducted closest to the regional championship date.”
